Current affairs, human rights, justice with specific focus on Malaysia and where the world situation has a direct or indirect impact on the Malaysian political climate.
Malaysians must never be told they are being "tolerated" when they exercise their constitutional rights, instead, the government of the day must respect their rights to do so.

WHY PAKATAN? WHY DUMP BN?
The next general elections is the most crucial of all elections in this country.
It must be treated as very important to every Malaysian voter and in the process every voter has a duty to ensure that the BN and especially UMNO is wiped out during that election.
Why? Yes you may ask why should it be so, you may feel it will leave a lot of uncertainty in the future of this country, you may feel it is too big a risk to take, you may be worried although you know that UMNO is not worthy of being the government of the day -yet you feel they are the only ones who have the experience.
The truth is UMNO needs to purge its entire leadership, from branch level right up to the supreme council and that will never happen as long as this present set continues.
UMNO leadership thrives on cronyism, it thrives on corruption at every layer at every level, they feel they own the country, they feel that nothing can happen to them, the sense of invincibility surrounds every UMNO leader at every level that corruption is open and it is an everyday issue in UMNO.
For an UMNO leader to remain in power he has to make sure that his Branch leaders and Divisional leaders are well taken care of, likewise the division leader's relationship with the Branch leaders and the Branch leaders relationship with his core branch members. There must be benefits in kind for the leadership at every level to survive and if this is not done the division or branch fails, it falls apart from bickering and infighting. Nothing in UMNO is free.
The system has produced the biggest bunch of oxymorons as politicians and "leaders" in this country, and they are all in UMNO, that to leave this country to be run by them and their cronies in the MCA the MIC and the remaining BN component parties will be to actually allow this beloved country to self destruct.
Let's review a few issues here to get things in the proper perspective.
Najib talks about 1 Malaysia, the government prints huge bill boards, it is in almost every printed material in town, from the government controlled mass media to advertisement banners to even toilet tissue covers, that last one I think is the most appropriate and beside the 1 Malaysia is Najib's face, to tell the whole world that he is number 1 in Malaysia, I suppose.
The day after Najib proclaims one Malaysia his deputy comes out and says, "I am Malay first and Malaysian second," a direct affront to his boss who just decides to side step the issue and leave it unattended. So what is this 1 Malaysia? Well very honestly even Najib hasn't got the slightest clue.
Now after all that rhetoric about 1 Malaysia, today in a speech to PEKIDA theMalaysian Islamic Missionary and Welfare Association members he said, "Malays and Muslims have no choice but to defend the current federal government as this is they only way the future of the Malay race and the dignity of Islam can be safeguarded."
This is clearly the signs of desperation coming from a man who only recently was shouting the 1 Malaysia slogan from all corners of the country, so where is his 1 Malaysia now? Isn't that an oxymoron?
The other races in this country feel as much cheated as the Malays feel, because UMNO has used all the Malay allocation to enrich its membership, to feed the greed and the corruption that lies inbred in the very fabric of UMNO without which UMNO collapses. And to feed that greed they are running this country bankrupt. Why then are top UMNO leaders so eager to own property in foreign nations? The answe lies in the fact that once they have bled the nation they'll leave it high and dry and head for their overseas destinations. The Sarawak CM is the clearest example.
In UMNO there is no Malay agenda, the fear that DAP will expose this to the Malays, has left the UMNO leadership worried and for that they use the controlled media to condemn the DAP and make it look like a monstrous anti Malay party.
The DAP leadership went to jail fighting for the rights of a Malay grandmother and her grand daughter, and yet no man in UMNO had the guts to come out
Again in UMNO there is no Malay agenda, if there is one it is to rob the ordinary Malay by promoting ignorance amongst the ordinary Kampung Malays,and this is what UMNO has been doing all this while.
We have read about the countless corruption cases so conveniently swept under the carpet, or so timidly looked upon for which the most timid of all charges are brought against the perpetrators so that they get off Scott free or face the minimum of sentences. Many are not even brought to court, and they can't because this government survives on a "you scratch my back I scratch your back" philosophy.
The latest involving Sharizaat, the famous "National Feedlot Corporation (NFC) issue," and the stupid defence she made at the UMNO assembly only goes to show the quality of members the Wanita UMNO is made up of, not one member had the guts or maybe even the depth to question Sharizat.
UMNO being what UMNO is we now have a man from within come out and call for her resignation, and that is Kinabatangan MP Bung Moktar Radin, a notorious UMNO personality himself, and today another UMNO man, the division Chief for Cheras, Syed Ali Alhabsee supported Bung Moktar’s view, but UMNO wisdon still prevails in such circumstances this Syed Ali offers her an escape clause in his call, he says if the PM or the DPM does not want her to go she can remain.
Incidentally both Syed Ali and Sharizat are "Melayu celup."
Syed Ali Alhabsee says that she shoudl step down, but continue with the leadership of the wanita, and if the UMNO leadership decides not to accept her resignation that includes the DPM who happens to be an interested party in this case and who is implicated in the award of this feedlot corporation to Sharizat's husband without any tender exercise even though this was originally proposed by other parties who had studied the project and brought it to the attention of the government. This other party comprised Malays, but are not have been members of UMNO's inner circle.
The splits in UMNO are very apparent, they are united or seem to be united now to face a common foe, the people, only that this time the people have got wiser, UMNO is in the brink of desperation and desperate people will do desperate things including to hurl desperate and dangerous allegations to pit races against each other, that we know is Najib's forte, he did it at the TPCA stadium on the eve of Ops lallang, his deputy was there with him then, it is the forte of his cousin Krishamuddin, and they'll do it without batting an eyelid.
The people have to be vigilant, they must unite and fight this cause to save the nation we need an alternative government, we need to break this UMNO BN monopoly of governing this nation, it is only in that way that UMNO will be forced to purge corruption form its ranks and that of its partners in the BN and then offer themselves back to the people about three or maybe four terms later as a new and vibrant alternative to Pakatan if there is a need, or maybe another more credible party will emerge from the destruction of UMNO and the erasure of the names of its leaders from the beginning of the UMNO Baru era.
We the people deserve better, we need a government that will listen to us, that puts our interest above thier own selfish desires of self enrichment as is the case now. The PM's son is is millionaire, the PM's brother is one of the biggest bankers in the country, the PM's wife has still many questions hanging over her head, every head of MIC and MCA become multi - millionaires, whislt the people become poorer.
The chief Minister of Sarawak is among the richest people in the world and yet the natives of Sarawak are languishing in poverty.
The lavish lives they lead are akin to that of the French aristocracy pre the French Revolution, and we have a Maria Antoinette look alike (in character I mean) in this government, I do not have to mention names.
This party that is so riddled with corruption that it has become a way of life and the very lifeblood of UMNO must now go for a complete revamp, it has to be forced to revamp, to rid itself of this disease and to come out anew a "renewal of sorts" and those within can't possibly do that, they will all have to go and give way to a new breed in the party, it can't with the present leadership, it needs total overhaul, all the diseased minds must be purged and new life instilled into the party for it to have the legitimacy to rule.
For many years we had voted the BN, we did so because we did not see an alternative or at least we thought so, in that process we built a monster of huge proportions today this monster - the BN is not the alternative it is the disease,it is the threat to our very survival, it has to go and as such the only viable alternative we have today is the Pakatan, they have proved themselves in all the states they have controlled against all the odds imposed by the Federal government.
We have to vote the opposition to save the country and give us an alternative, do not be led by shallow talk, spread the news around now.
Decide and take the only viable alternative around The Pakatan. Vote PKR.
BN is no longer the alternative it is a disease and a very dangerous one, get rid of this very serious disease from our beloved country less we become the next Burma or Phillipines or maybe even Somalia.
